Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, stroll through Tulliniemi Nature Path, kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, and hike along Santalahti Nature Trail.
